1971 Citroen DS. It’s owned by a semiretired Citroen mechanic in Santa Cruz California. He took me for a quick ride around the neighborhood, that consisted of hitting speed bumps at 30 and intentionally driving off curbs. This car has a 4 speed manual, column mounted shifter.

It takes bumps like a a dream. The French knew what they were doing! Ground clearance for days.
